Bio

Fascinated with the piano since childhood, Andrew has grown up with many influences under his belt. At an early age, Andrew was exposed to Motown, Classical music, and for lack of a better term - oldies but goodies.

Discovering the guitar, bass, and drums didn't come till about age 14 when he started singing, writing, and playing guitar in several various high school indie/punk bands in the Cleveland area.

Attending the Ohio Center for Broadcasting back in '02, Andrew was introduced into the realm of digital recording, and hasn't looked back since. It was around this time that he began digging deeper into the world of jazz, and its improvisational qualities within popular song. He is very influenced by some of the great piano-pop composers of the era. Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, and Steely Dan - just to name a few.

By 2005, Andrew was playing shows as keyboardist for Kate Voegele. During this time, Andrew shared the stage with many well known bands and artists such as John Mayer, "Counting Crows", "Mae", "Virginia Coalition", and "The Clarks".

In July of 2008, Andrew released his debut LP called Dream It Good. The record was co-produced by Mike Brown at Lava Room Recording Studios who has recorded, mixed, and produce acts such as "Papa Roach", "Social Distortion", "Garbage", and "Bone Thugs and Harmony". Andrew tracked almost every instrument himself, and had the album replicated through U.S. Digital Media.

In his first regional tour, Andrew will be joined on stage by drummer and Cleveland native, Mike Hricko. In the late 1970’s to early 80’s, Mike was known best as the touring drummer of local band "Destiny". Soon after, he found himself playing alongside local finger style guitarist (now nationally acclaimed) Brian Henke in "The Dream". He also performed live with "Sweet Revelation Band" in the mid 80’s. He has been a session drummer on recordings from numerous artists such as Vincent Von Veith and the infamous Les Hofmeister.

In the studios, Mike has worked alongside producers Michael Seifert (Ante Up Audio) and John Walsh (Lava Room Recording).
